Helping Financial Services Companies Minimize Risk

We have a robust practice defending fintech companies and banks against claims under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA), Regulation E (Reg E), and state consumer protection laws (UDAAP). Over the course of the last decade, we have developed a national practice representing traditional banks, challenger banks, and fintech companies in these disputes – including defending our clients in arbitrations across the country, helping our clients develop better internal practices and stronger arbitration agreements, and negotiating with state attorneys general and other regulators.

We have successfully resolved hundreds of arbitrations pertaining to alleged unauthorized transactions, improper holds, system outages, and delays in the posting of ACH transactions to prepaid debit cards, credit builder accounts, credit cards, and spending accounts. We have negotiated favorable fee arrangements with the American Arbitration Association for our clients.

We also advise on numerous other claims asserted against financial services companies, including claims such as:

  • Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
  • Fair Debit Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)
  • Right to Financial Privacy Act (RFPA)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA)
  • Holder in Due Course (HIDC)
  • Violation of Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy Proceedings

We also help our clients with questions relating to warranties and indemnities under the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (“Check 21”), returned checks, check and debit card processing, and compliance with subpoenas and garnishments affecting financial accounts.
